Don't Rock the Boat

This past weekend I ran my first 5k ever!! I was a little nervous but way more excited! The course was along the river and was gorgeous! Most of the course was flat and completely shaded. Thankfully! I've been running around 8 in the morning to beat the heat, but shew at 1o it was definitely hot. This was the best first race I could've possibly done. The volunteers were super super friendly and helpful. I didn't feel lost in all the experienced runners at all. I had my  personal best, a 26:45 and placed 54th out of 250. I also managed to snag first in my age group. Talk about shocking! I just wanted to finish the race, not take first place ha! The day was a fun one and I can't wait to sign up for another race.

  3. Wow! First in your age group! That is fabulous! <3 Awesome job! Once Florida starts cooling down I can't wait to really start running again.
